New Zealand's Electoral Commission has referred 48 people to police for allegedly voting more than once at last year's general election.
Under the Electoral Act 1993, it is an offence to vote more than once at the same election. The offence carries with it a maximum punishment of two years in prison or a fine of up to $40,000.
"As these matters are now with the Police, the Electoral Commission will not be commenting further," a statement says.
Police confirmed to Newshub that the referrals have been received.
There were 37 referrals for dual voting after the 2017 election, 126 after the 2014 election, and 63 after the 2011 election.
Back in December, the Electoral Commission said it had referred eight matters relating to the election and referendums to police.
Those alleged breaches of the Electoral Act related to a false statement on a special vote declaration, the failure to include a promoter statement on referendum advertising, the delivery of community newspapers containing election advertisements, an email sent to voters and an election sign on display.
